We’re back with our second paid DLC for Dead cells and we are very proud of what we have achieved! I wanted to talk a little bit about why we chose to continue with our “outdoors” theme and what you can expect in our latest installment.
Back when we started working on our first paid DLC The bad seed we sat around the whiteboard and thought about what was missing Dead cells. Someone said something flippant like “fresh air” and we went from there.
This first DLC and Fatal falls are designed to bring some fresh air to the world that was previously mostly contained in claustrophobic dungeon-type levels. We brought more color, more verticality and more danger of falling to death.
Fatal falls in particular, focuses a lot on managing your positioning as you move through the levels. Should you really go and fight this huge statue monster where there is a group of kamikaze birds threatening to push you off the platform? Do you have to rush into a complicated fight without a clear escape route free of traps? These are the questions we hope you’ll ask yourself as you play the new content.
At the moment, you can face two new levels and a boss:
- Fractured shrines: Features floating platforms, spear-throwing snakes, and giant statues that have forgotten they are statues.
- Forgotten shores: Necromantic wizards bringing back failed experiences to taste… Impromptu tennis games in the pouring rain… And of course the constant risk of falling off the cliff.
- The scarecrow: Formerly known as the Royal Gardener. He is very protective of his flowers… It would be a shame if someone… tramples them…
As you can see, not only did we stay outside, but we tried to stay in tune with our nature / water themes. There is a hidden logic to this, which will hopefully become clear as we continue to update the game.
In the end, it’s also just an excuse for our artists to use a bunch of brighter colors that can be difficult to use in the underground levels, so it’s a lot of fun for them too.
Please feel free to drop by our official Xbox Club, Discord server, or social media channel and ask any questions you might have about what we do.
We hope you enjoy the DLC and the new animated little trailer that we released, as usual this will keep us up to date with all the free updates we have planned for the game.
Thanks for your support and good luck!
